Putney, London patients ask when veneers may be used in the smile

Veneers Putney London - Putney, London patients ask when veneers may be used in the smileAt Gentle Dental Putney, we have a variety of restorations we use for our London area patients. We know that having a beautiful smile is high on the list of ways to achieve a more attractive appearance. The smile affects the first impression given to others. When problems are apparent, it can detract from the smile. It often makes patients self-conscious about the way they look to others and keeps them from talking, laughing, or smiling in normal social situations. Gentle Dental Putney has a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can greatly improve the smile. When imperfections of the smile near the front of the mouth are having a negative impact on its appearance, our team may suggest the benefits of placing porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers have been used for many years to improve smiles. Patients who ask their dental professionals about these restorations will find that they are fast, affordable, and easy to use in covering problems. Typical issues that can be addressed with the use of porcelain veneers include fractures, permanent staining, misalignment, and gaps between teeth. Instead of having composite resin bonding placed or undergoing months of orthodontic treatment, porcelain veneers can disguise these problems by bonding ceramic facings over the front of the teeth.

Porcelain veneers are affordable, and patients will be able to achieve their brand new smile in just a few appointments. The first appointment is to consult with the dentist about whether porcelain veneers are right for the patient. Alternatives may be discussed, but if veneers are the ultimate decision, patients will move forward with preparation of their teeth. During this visit, the fronts of the teeth are filed down and impressions are taken. The moulds that are made from these impressions are sent to a dental laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers. This takes approximately one to two weeks. When complete, patients return to the dental practice to have the veneers bonded in place.

Porcelain veneers are a wonderful solution for many patients seeking a more beautiful smile. The team of Gentle Dental Putney is here to help determine if patients can benefit from these restorations.
